Watercolour Love

This Christmas I made an investment.  I have been loving using watercolours, and my humble set I was given almost 20 years ago is almost used up.  So I splurged on a full set of 40 Windsor and Newton Cotman Watercolour Half Pans, and to hold them, a Schmincke tin.

I drew up a colour chart to show examples of the colours, as you can't clearly tell the colours from the pans as is.  

Then I wanted to experiment and play with them.  What better way than to be inspired by their luscious beauty and do a still life featuring the watercolour set itself?  

Here are the steps I took:
Step 1: Sketch of 'Watercolour Love'  Note I changed the Schminke owl symbol to my own owl symbol.
